The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Arch Text, Envelope Deformation, and Linket Offset WordArt
« on: March 18, 2015, 01:13:07 PM »
All in one video!  These guys are fun and chatty and do some really nice easy to follow videos.  They have done a 5 part series on text art in Inkscape. This one is about 25 minutes so grab some lunch and sit back and watch... I learned a bunch of new techniques.

I hope we can revitalize this forum before it goes away.  I hope also that you would comment or post here as you do some designs, or have questions.

Great video. I did something similar in Corel last month because I didn't know how to do it in Inkscape. I just finished watching the video, opened Inkscape and re-created my design using instructions from the video.

Instead of using a shape created in Inkscape I used an image as my base shape.

Thanks for the great link Susan. I will be watching all the videos.

Very nice! I could use that on a shirt!   Envelope did not work on my inkscape so I went back a version and tried it....you did a more creative design than I came up with!

Hi sjordon, did you watch the video on the link Susan gave? I will try over the Easter weekend to write a mini tutorial showing what I did to get the individual letters to fit in a shape.
